We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

The West’s War on Free Speech

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from New Eastern Outlook
In a recent Tweet, NDI linked to a New York Times article titled, “In Europe’s Election Season, Tech Vies to Fight Fake News.” It claimed in the Tweet that the article featured:
"A look at some of the projects aiming to use automated algorithms to identify and combat fake news."
The article itself though, reveals nothing short of a global effort by US tech-giants Google and Facebook, in collaboration with the Western media, to censor any and all media that fails to align with Western-dominated narratives.
Cartalucci reports that our Big Brothers in the ruling class are beginning a project to insure that we, the people, only receive information and analysis over the internet/web that meets with their approval instead of what they regard as "fake news". So that we don't notice, I think they will use the "boiling frog" method: they will initially target obviously fake news items--even to the extent of supplying such fake news reports themselves--but then gradually turning their attention to reports that they don't like and don't want us to view.
